P.E.T.S. (Protecting Even the Strays) was created with the vision of humanely assisting the numerous stray and feral cats roaming the streets in Panora, Iowa. P.E.T.S. has now grown to become a safe haven for many abused, orphaned, and abandoned cats and dogs in Guthrie County - Iowa..
P.E.T.S., located in Panora, Iowa, is a small, non-profit rescue organization consisting of volunteers. We provide humane shelter and services for cats in need in our area. We hold a shelter license with the State of Iowa and many of our cats inhabit our small shelter located in Panora's business district. Passersby can peer into our front windows to see some of our available cats and kittens.
Through contributions from individuals and organizations, P.E.T.S. maintains its dedication to animals in need. Without the generous support of the community and beyond, P.E.T.S. would not be able to assist the hundreds of animals that come into our care ever year.
We ask that interested parties please fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire prior to lining up an appointment to meet the pet of interest. Please fill out the questionnaire only if you are seriously considering adopting an animal. Click on the "Adoption Application" button to the right and then select the appropriate form, either cat or dog questionnaire. Once you have submitted the questionnaire, a volunteer adoption coordinator will contact you usually within 24 hours. Please be patient.
Interested in meeting some of our beautiful kitties? Please visit us at our shelter located at 114 W Main Street - Panora, Iowa, on Saturday afternoons from noon to 4pm. You can also visit some of our adoptables at the Petco Jordan Creek location at 6805 Mills Civic Pkwy in West Des Moines, Iowa, during their normal business hours.
ALL dog meet/greets are by appointment-only.
Thank you for your interest in one of our adoptables. We are thankful you are choosing to adopt.
